Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
